Auto Express polled 61,113 owners in Driver Power 2015 - the biggest ever survey - to find out how drivers rate their cars in categories including reliability, running costs, practicality and in-car tech.

The Lexus IS polled number one overall and also won the ease of driving category. Previous champ - the Skoda Yeti - finished second while the Hyundai i10 rounded off the podium.

There was British success in our Driver Power rankings, too. The Jaguar XJ, MINI Hatch, Nissan Leaf and MG3 are all built in Britain and finished in the top 10. 

And there is growing satisfaction among owners as the overall scores for the top five would have been good enough to win the title in 2014.

Elsewhere, the SEAT Leon was ranked as best compact family car while the Skoda Superb - our 2011 winner - held onto the best family car title. The Skoda Roomster was best MPV and the BMW 4 Series landed the best sports car prize.

The Audi A5 Sportback was the most improved car in Driver Power 2015 as it moved up 80 places from 106th to 26th. The SEAT Leon, however, fell the most - down from 65th to 192nd.

Toyota was the most popular manufacturer with 13 models in the Top 200 while the biggest-selling car in the UK - the Ford Fiesta - finished 52nd.
